Freezing Blueberries

The local farmers market has had some amazing blueberries. So I started freezing them so I can enjoy them in smoothies and other recipes in the winter. I looked up the best way to freeze them on pinterest and found this easy method. Will be picking up more blueberries this weekend so I can have a taste of summer during the long, cold winter. Here's the link if you want to freeze some blueberries

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

These were a perfect morning snack and I decided to make them because I picked up zucchini at the farmers market (hopefully mine should be ready soon that I'm growing in my garden).I cut my zucchini a little bigger than the recipe showed because that's my preference. Here's the link to the recipe if you want to make these delicious muffins

Scrapbook pages and card

 This past season we had snow early an late in the season (and of course throughout the season)

 Love my sleepy, lazy pup

 My snowblower King

 Good thing we have that snowblower, but a few times since I don't know how to use it I had to shovel the driveway and sidewalk by using a shovel and it took forever

 Sidewalks being cleared

 A christmas card I made inspired by pinterest

 Measuring the snow with my snowboots

Funfetti Birthday Cake Oreo Cupcakes

I made these with a chocolate frosting that I used on my vanilla cupcakes since I was making so many cupcakes it was easier to double up on some of the frostings. The oreos were a great addition to these and I will try them again with the frosting they show in the recipe, but they were wonderful with the chocolate frosting also so I say mix it up with whatever you like. Here's the link to the recipe
